Mother’s Day Preacher Urges Mothers to Serve as Agents of Change

first_imgMrs. Alicia Q. Yancy has urged mothers all over Liberia to serve as agents of change as they make sure children are brought up in a proper manner.Mrs. Yancy, who works with grassroots churches around Liberia, has also declared that mothers across Liberia have huge tasks to handle if they must work in leadership positions in their various churches.She made the call recently when she served as keynote speaker at the Mothers’ Day program held at the Soul Cleansing Clinic of Jesus Christ in Chocolate Factory, Gardnersville Monrovia.The program, which was set to honor the church’s spiritual Mother, Oretha Tonia During for her numerous contributions and hard work, was attended by people of personalities, including Liberty Party political leader, Cllr. Charles Walker Brumskine and the Publishers of the Daily Observer newspaper, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Y. Best and Mae Gene Best.Mother During’s husband, Pastor J. Adolphus During, had told the Observer’s Women and Family Desk via mobile phone, that the Women’s Ministry had organized the program in order to honor his wife for her services to both her community and church.Still speaking, the guest speaker, Mrs. Yancy said, “This day has been set aside in different parts of Liberia to celebrate mothers and their tireless contributions to society. With this, I want to say that mothers not only in Liberia but all over the world have a huge task ahead of them in making sure that children are brought up in a Godly manner.”However, she added: “While it is true that mothers should be honored and appreciated, it is also glaring that all mothers are not worthy of such glory. I say this because for a home to be uplifted, mothers must play a vital role. So, if we come across mothers, who have brought internal condemnation to motherhood, then they must not be given any kind of praises or honor.”Mother Yancy maintained that mothers should always try to intercede on behalf of their children and husbands.Mrs. Yancy named some characteristics of a good mother as being, “loving, caring, submissive, understanding, God-fearing, intelligent and faithful. When we do not see any woman with such characteristics then we must know that she is not a mother whose footsteps can be followed.”She stated that mothers, no matter what, must remain obedient and submissive to God Almighty.She highlighted that there are two kinds of mothers: ones who have brought pride to motherhood and the others who have eternal condemnation to womanhood.“There are some mothers, who have helped to up-hold the integrity of women through their good works, while there are some women, who do not value their worth as Mothers. But what I will say today is that, if we must see the face of God then we must possess all the good characters to become mothers of substance,” she pointed out.Speaking, too, at the program, Cllr. Brumskine expressed gratitude to the organizers for the kind gesture of inviting him. He encouraged all the honorees to continue to serve as role models to other people, both at the church and community level.Cllr. Brumskine also called on mothers to continue to seek the welfare of their individual families.Also gracing the occasion Mr. Kenneth Y. Best, Managing Director of the Daily Observer said mothers are blessings to every family and must therefore be given the necessary support to seek the welfare of their families.He urged mothers to remain strong and firmed as there are many challenges along the way.“Just like our Mother Mrs. During who has been honored here today, you as Mothers should always be ready to make meaningful contributions to the different societies you form part off. If you are hard working, you will definitely be rewarded tomorrow. Mother During has been of great help to people in her church, community and the society at large, and that is why she is being honored today,” Mr. Best added.In appreciation, Mother During thanked the Women Ministry and the entire church for organizing the program.“I am very grateful that the church can today recognize my good works by honoring me. It has always been my dream to serve the people of God no matter what, and to win souls for Christ.”“However, I will like to say, we will continue to work as a family in ensuring the good news of God is heard all over Liberia,” Mrs. During assured.The Soul Cleansing Clinic of Jesus Christ was established in 1996 by the Holy Spirit through then spiritual Mother Harrietta Nesby.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Moral fiber lacking in halls of Congress

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m. – The Fresno Bee There was quite a scene in the Capitol rotunda (last) week: President Bush and many members of Congress honoring the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual leader, with the Congressional Gold Medal. China is terribly upset with the United States over the award. But the honor is certainly warranted; the Dalai Lama is a compelling figure in the global fight for justice. That came on the heels of stories about some members of the House of Representatives scuttling away from earlier support for a nonbinding resolution acknowledging the Armenian genocide. They fear Turkey’s wrath, and want to protect military supply routes to Iraq that run through Turkey. So the president is willing to anger China, a world power, and members of Congress jostle each other to get a photo-op with the Dalai Lama, but they don’t want to risk making Turkey mad over historically established events that cost the lives of 1.5 million Armenians. ? The United States has been willing to condemn past and present genocides, including ? atrocities in Cambodia, Darfur, Ukraine and Bosnia. But not, apparently, in Armenia. ? This has turned into a serious test of the moral fiber of the House. ? How will it fare? last_img read more


first_imgScor*Hard luck but still a massive well done to our Instrumental Music Group of Caoimhe Ni Raghallaigh, Kyle Macauley, Eoin and Liam Orr and Noel Lineghan who participated in the Clubs first ever the Ulster Scor Final last Saturday in Downpatrick. Unfortunately no Clubs from Donegal were successful in the competition but nevertheless it was a huge achievement to get so far. A special word of thanks too to our Cultural Officer Brendan Ward for all the hard work he does behind the scenes for Scor events. Comhgairdeachas airís*Comortas Peile na Gaeltachta*Gaoth Dobhair 1-4 CLG BnaG 1-8Na Galloglaigh got life under new management off to a winning start on Saturday with victory over an understrength Gaoth Dobhair in the Senior Gaeltacht. Conditions were extremely difficult with a gale blowing down a pitch which was slippery underfoot. Na Galloglaigh started with that gale at their backs but it was Gaoth Dobhair who opened the scoring with a goal with they cut through the defence after 10 minutes. From then on though Na Galloglaigh raised the intensity and the free taking of Cathal Mc Gettigan put them back in the lead before Christopher Barrett tagged on several points to leave the half time score 1-0 to 0-8. Anyone watching the game would have had doubts whether 5 points would have been enough of a lead at half time with the gale force wind, and when Gaoth Dobhair scored their first point immediately after the restart it spelled trouble for Na Galloglaigh. However they defended very well and kept possession as best they could to limit Gaoth Dobhairs opportunities to score. With ten minutes to go Conor McNulty scored an early contender for goal of the season when a flowing move involving nearly every player on the pitch saw the corner back pop up to fist the ball past the keeper. This put Na Galloglaigh 7 points clear and it was then backs to the wall for the remainder of the game. They stood steadfast to everything Gaoth Dobhair threw at them and although the hosts scored 3 late points the boys in blue did enough to advance to the next round by 4 points. The boys will now play the winners of Cloughaneely or Termon at home in the quarter final which is scheduled for the 12th of March. In the Reserve match Na Galloglaigh struggled to take full advantage of the wind at their backs in the first half to lead 0-3 to 0-2 and were eventually well beat by the hosts 3-14 tp 0-4.

Instagram is the worst social networking site for cyberbullying according to teens

first_imgFigures reveal the worst social media websites for cyberbullying, according to teenagers.UK anti-bullying and pro-equality charity Ditch the Label work with young people aged between 12 and 25 and help them to overcome bullying.Earlier this year, they surveyed young people for their Annual Bullying Report, and found that 71% of teens believe that social networks do not do enough to prevent cyberbullying. Sadly, 23% of participants think that cyberbullying “is just part of growing up.”The figures revealed by the anti-bullying group reveal that 42% of young people have experienced cyberbullying on Instagram.This was followed by Facebook (37%) and Snapchat (31%).WhatsApp was fourth on the list with 12%, followed by YouTube (10%), Twitter (9%), and Tumblr (3%). Surprisingly, 69% of all respondents admit that they have done something abusive towards another person online.35% sent a screenshot of someone’s status or photo to laugh at them in a group chat, 25% ‘trolled’ somebody in an online game, while 17% liked or shared something online that openly mocks another person.Some 5% of respondents even created a fake ‘catfish’ profile and used it to annoy or upset somebody.Professor Sheri Bauman says; “More than a quarter of participants use social media “constantly” and another 16% access it “several times an hour”.”“That means that about 43% of youth are engaged with social media often enough that we might worry that their use has become “addictive” or at least “compulsive,” and slightly over a third of survey participants said they would experience negative feelings (stress, anxious, lonely) if they could not access social media for one day. “The 39% who think they could ignore social media for longer than that may be like other addicts, convincing themselves that they don’t have a problem. When put to the test, however, it’s likely that many would succumb to the attraction of social media more quickly than they think.”Instagram is the worst social networking site for cyberbullying according to teens was last modified: August 4th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:bullyingCYBERBULLYINGditch the labelInstagramSnapchatlast_img read more
